SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego's Lindbergh Field was ranked the third-best airport in the U.S. in a study released Thursday by the travel website The Points Guy.
The rankings were based on timeliness, accessibility and amenities, but not public opinion, according to the website. The authors used both federal data and published information from the airports themselves.
In a list of the 30 busiest airports in the country, Lindbergh Field ranked below No. 1 Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix and No. 2 Portland International in Oregon.
San Diego also ranked fourth in a sub-category of shortest waits in security lines. Other timeliness factors included flight delays and cancellations.
The accessibility criterion included drive time to and from the city center or other popular destination, number of public transportation transfers required and public transit time to and from airport. Amenities included the number of restaurants and lounges, Wi-Fi fees and parking costs.
The worst-rated airports were the New York-area trio of LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy International and Newark Liberty International.
